Tips to personalise your stay in Florence

Overview

Tucked away down a quiet street, just moments from the heart of Florence, a stay at the Palazzo di Camugliano offers a rare opportunity to be immersed in an indulgent world of antiquities and privilege.

 

Owned by a Florentine Marquis, Lorenzo Niccolini di Camugliano, the palazzo dates back to the 16th century and still features the original ceiling frescos, fireplaces, ornate stuccowork and magnificent parquet flooring.

 

Wifi and the in-room mini-bar are both complimentary, indicative of the very welcoming atmosphere. Here you are a house, not hotel, guest, an atmosphere reinforced by the team who are on hand with one-to-one attention.

 

In true aristocratic style, breakfast is served by waiters, at your table, either in the garden or in the magnificent dining-room. Tea and coffee is available at other times and evenings kick off with prosecco and canapés.

Rooms

Each of the bedrooms is quite different, in terms of size and outlook, but all are extremely elegant with four poster beds, antique furniture and high quality mirrored and marble bathrooms. The Limonaia suite looks directly out over the charming internal garden.

Dining

Common spaces include two sitting-rooms and, in addition, the frescoed dining room, where breakfast à la carte is served, and the buffet room with juices, a selection of teas and infusions, fruit, small home-made bakery, centrifuges and aperitifs available to the guests any time of the day.

 

When temperatures allow it, breakfast is served in the courtyard gardens.

 

If you love city markets and especially street food, do not miss the Central Market at lunchtime. The advice is to get lost among the food stalls, where you can stock up on wine, local cheeses and sausages and various other delights to take away or eat there.

Map

The palazzo has a very central location in Florence, hidden away in a mainly residential street that is just a short walk from the Duomo, Santa Maria Novella station and the exclusive boutiques that line the Via Tornabuoni. Most of the principal sights of Florence are accessible on foot.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
